It also explains the importance of hadith by stating that knowledge of Quran cannot be completely gained without the knowledge hadith. It declares that in the topic of reporting or narration the need of authenticity and confiscation is always there since beginning. It says that the science of rectification and validation is one of the major studies of hadith. This study is important and sensitive at the same time as it the knowledge which helps to identify whether the hadith is Sahih (authentic) or Da'if (weak).
